Ever wanted to record your own music or make an animation? How about learning to make your own pasta or fresh spring rolls? Whatever you'd like to try, join us for Adult Learners' Week from 14 to 18 May as we offer all kinds of new taster sessions. Take a look at what's on offer in the timetable below.

What is Adult Learners' Week?

Adult Learners' Week celebrates learning and learners in all their diversity, inspiring thousands of people each May to try something new. The event encourages all kinds of learning, whether for fun or leading to a qualification. Events will take place in workplaces, libraries, colleges and many other places across Britain and in 55 other countries around the world.

What can I try?

This year many projects across the Camden Society are taking part. From Monday 14 May until Friday 18 May, our catering training projects will be offering cookery taster sessions to everyone who wants to get involved. Come and have a go at bread making, cupcake decoration and cake baking. To find out more, please contact our individual cafes.

For people interested in arts, music, computers, cycling and picnicking, we are also holding a whole range of workshops and sessions at our main office at 60 Holmes Road and at our Greenwood Place learning centre - both in Kentish Town. All sessions are inclusive and for people with a learning disability.
